There are even meatless variations, cooked with mushrooms.

But we will tell you how to cook this unusual dish with minced chicken. The plate will have a pleasant and incredible taste. Besides, it suits any weight loss menu due to its amount of protein, vitamins, and minerals. So, let's try right now!

Weight Loss Tips

  • The most harmful type of meat heat treatment is frying. Oven-baked or grilled meat without the use of oil is much healthier.

  • Steamed chicken breast has a calorie content of 113 kcal / 100 g. Plus, the minerals and vitamins (A, E, B2, B6, B12) are preserved.

  • Try to make minced meat yourself, as lard is often added to the store.
